  2. PhD project: Multi-proxy reconstruction of atmospheric circulation patterns and climate changes in the past

    International Max Planck Research School for Global Biogeochemical Cycles, Jena, Germany
    Application Deadline: 20 September 2016

    Lake sediments consist of organic and inorganic components which contain the geochemical signature from different sources in the lake system and, therefore, reflect environmental and hydrological changes controlled by climate variations. Autochthonous organic matters reflect in situ lake conditions, while allochthonous organic materials characterize the catchment. In this PhD-project, proxy … Read more ]

  3. PhD project: Quantification of biotic and abiotic impacts on soil carbon dynamics

    International Max Planck Research School for Global Biogeochemical Cycles, Jena, Germany
    Application Deadline: 20 September 2016

    Soils store the vast majority of terrestrial organic carbon. It is therefore important to understand the soil carbon dynamics as the soil can act as both as carbon source and sink under changing environmental conditions. These carbon dynamics are driven by abiotic and biotic factors. Abiotic factors like temperature and … Read more ]

  4. PhD project: Profile follows function - trace gas release and microbial processes at the interface soil and atmosphere

    International Max Planck Research School for Global Biogeochemical Cycles, Jena, Germany
    Application Deadline: 20 September 2016

    Soils act either as a large source or sink for various trace gases. As such, carbon dioxide (CO2), methane (CH4), and nitrous oxide (N2O) are known to be produced or consumed within microbial processes. Studies of functional gene expression – as a proxy for microbial activity – and corresponding release … Read more ]

  5. PhD project: The dark side of primary production in soils

    International Max Planck Research School for Global Biogeochemical Cycles, Jena, Germany
    Application Deadline: 20 September 2016

    Microbial CO2 fixation in soils is a ubiquitous process, but this contribution of photoautotrophic and chemoautotrophic organisms to primary production has been largely ignored so far. In general, soils are only presented as hot spots for plant litter degradation, leading to a net flux of CO2 into the atmosphere. Soil … Read more ]

  6. PhD project: Microbial processes in soil development at a former uranium mining site

    International Max Planck Research School for Global Biogeochemical Cycles, Jena, Germany
    Application Deadline: 20 September 2016

    At the former uranium mining site in eastern Thuringia, the university established in 2016 four plots in which radioisotope/metal transport into plant biomass and the impact of soil microorganisms on the prevalent processes. While generally, microbial impact on mineral formation, on solubilization and hence uptake into plant biomass, and metal … Read more ]

  7. PhD project: Radiocarbon as a constraint for the soil carbon cycle

    International Max Planck Research School for Global Biogeochemical Cycles, Jena, Germany
    Application Deadline: 20 September 2016

    We seek PhD researcher to investigate how radiocarbon can be used as a constraint for soil carbon cycling at global scales. The work will be part of a new ERC grant, 14Constraint. Among others the proposed project will address the following research question: What factors control the age of C … Read more ]

  8. PhD project: Ecosystem influence on dissolved organic matter composition

    International Max Planck Research School for Global Biogeochemical Cycles, Jena, Germany
    Application Deadline: 20 September 2016

    Dissolved organic matter (DOM) is a key component in the global carbon cycle and knowledge on its composition and reactivity is crucial to understand biogeochemical processes such as carbon storage, CO2 release and coupling of terrestrial and marine systems (Cole et al., 2007; Tranvik et al., 2009). In order to … Read more ]

  9. PhD project: How do canopy-generated input patterns at the forest floor affect flow and transport of water and matter beyond the subsoil?

    International Max Planck Research School for Global Biogeochemical Cycles, Jena, Germany
    Application Deadline: 20 September 2016

    Forest canopies strongly affect water and matter fluxes, especially by generating substantial heterogeneity and forming organized infiltration and flow patterns. The canopy does not only impede fluxes, but also converges water flow, thus creating dripping points and stemflow. Previously deposited or mobilisable matter is released and washed out with the … Read more ]

  10. PhD project: Assessing the effects of tree neighborhood, size and three-dimensional structure on canopy drainage with LiDAR

    International Max Planck Research School for Global Biogeochemical Cycles, Jena, Germany
    Application Deadline: 20 September 2016

    Precipitation inputs at the forest floor are strongly modified by redistribution of water within canopies. Some of those processes, especially the formation of stemflow, can lead to hotspots of infiltration rates surpassing 10-100 fold the above canopy rainfall intensity. Among the many factors affecting stemflow yield, most are related to … Read more ]
